Director and activist, Ava Duvernay explores mass incarceration and the deliberate mythology of black criminality since the abolition of slavery in the 13th Amendment. We recognize the need for prison reform in this country given the disproportionate imprisonment of people of color and the billions in profit in this modern-day slave industry so perhaps this should be required viewing.
The 13th will be the first doc open the NY Film Festival and will debut on Netflix on October 7, 2016. We’re also looking forward to seeing the cinematography work of our good friend and colleague, Kira Kelly! Check out the trailer & share your thoughts.
